Taylor Swift & Alan Carr discuss We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.



If you are lucky enough to find something that you love, and you have a shot at being good at it, don’t stop, don’t put it down.” ― Taylor Swift 


 [Taylor at 16]: “My dream is to look out into a crowd of thousands of people, and have them singing back the words to my songs. That, to me, would be just everything I’ve ever hoped for.”
